All Catholics acting in good faith, but accept Jorge Bergoglio as pope, please beware that you are in a material schism with the true pope, Benedict XVI. Your efforts at rebuilding Christendom will bear little fruit if you continue in your adherence to a false pope. You can see with your very own eyes how sharply the situation has deteriorated since March 2013 in both the Church and the world. Those of the Catholic Resistance of the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre should find it very interesting that 2013 marks the year when the resistance to the new direction of the SSPX should have grown and continue to grow to this very day. Yet what has happened since then other than the diminishing of that resistance? Could it be that Our Lord and Our Lady are not happy that most of the Catholic Resistance accepted and still accept Jorge Bergoglio as pope? I will leave that for you to think about.
I am well aware that the ultimate answer is the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, but praying for Jorge Bergoglio to do it is a waste of time and energy and, objectively speaking, an insult to Our Lady because he is not the pope. Nevertheless, while we implore Our Lady to intercede, we must do our part, and that includes rejecting Jorge Bergoglio as pope and accepting Benedict XVI as the true pope. Let us also pray for the conversion of Pope Benedict XVI and that he publicly repents of the evil he has inflicted upon the Church, condemns Vatican II, the Novus Ordo Missae, and the post-conciliar reforms, and works for the restoration of Christendom.
“Pray as though everything depended on God; act as though everything depended on you.”
